Soop Holla Forums, yall have any recommendations for Sci-fi movies that take place in the future? pic related is a fav, also films like Oblivion, Halo 4 Forward Unto Dawn, hell even Elysium (even though blomkamp fucked it up)
I'm just in love with portrayal's of the future.

They don't have to be new, i remember i ignored Blade Runner for years because of the year it was made, i figured all good sci fi had to have modern cgi. Boy was i wrong, i ended up loving the movie.

I'm not really into Halo and most video game movies are shit so i expected some half ass movie with Forward Unto Dawn but it was really great.

I'm not into video games but i do think the Halo series has a fantastic story as far as sci fi goes. i'm just hoping a studio would pick up the story. They could continue from Forward Unto Dawn or just start from scratch, the Halo story has many parts they could start from.

What director would do it justice though? Also i imagine it would have a huge budget, does that scare studios away?

Fifth Element is an obvious rec.
Metropolis is cool to, but really fucking old. Black and white with no words, just orchestra and written lines.

Noah Phillips

Yeah believe it or not i just saw Fifth Element for the first time a couple of weeks ago, i really loved it!
Metropolis sounds interesting, i love seeing how they managed to portray the future back when the cgi wasn't that great.

- 2001: A Space Odyssey
- Cowboy Bebop
- Her
- Akira
- Ghost in the Shell (the original film)
- The Matrix (original pls)
- Brazil
- I'd recommend Zero Theorem because it had awesome ideas, but the ending sucked and ruined the movie
- Starship Troopers ←— totally for you
- District 9 (if you're into a heavy-handed metaphor about apartheid)
- A Clockwork Orange (the book is great)
- Chronicles of Riddick
- Interstellar
- Wall-E
- Children of Men
- Oblivion
- Total Recall
- Ender's Game

I love, love scifi, watching it, but I've read more than I've watched. I have an awesome book list, too. But I can keep going, if you'd like. This is a great starter pack, though.

Halo 4
scifi set in the future

nigger no. you don't deserve my vast knowledge of good scifi films

you might as well have asked about star wars, a long time ago in a galaxy far far away

Op here, What do you all think of YA type films such as The Hunger Games, Divergent, The Maze Runner etc. I do get annoyed by the always expected love story in these YA films, but other than that i think they really dope portray's of some sort of future world.

It could be because i'm just a huge sucker for anything thats related to the future, lol.

Noah Morgan
Noah Morgan

Eh idk, i actually really like Gattaca and Equilibrium. To each his own i guess

Twelve Monkeys and Automata are ones i've seen, i'll look into the rest thanks user

Brody Stewart

I think they're good for people who have a simplistic knowledge and expectation of science fiction and political/social/technological advancement. They look cooler than they are cool, you know? It's like bubblegum. The art direction is usually the primary focus, and often even that is mediocre.

But hey: de gustibus non est disputandum.

Definitely watch Blade Runner first, it is the gold standard of sci-fi

Evan Martin
Evan Martin

It says it in the film, but a simple Google search should suffice

The protagonist, Thomas Lasky, is aboard a spaceship named Infinity in 2557. Forward Unto Dawn portrays his memory of the events on Circninus-IV in 2526, when he is a cadet at the Corbulo Academy, a training facility for the children of high-ranking UNSC officers.

I've seen those Purge movies, when i first heard about it i thought it was great. The whole concept is an amazing one, a single night where everything is legal, think of the cinematic possibilities. but NOPE they managed to fuck it up as expected, i was hoping they'd pick it up during the second one but no.

Great concept that they could have done a lot with, but they got lazy and did a shit job with it.

Camden Taylor

Although the YA aspect the overall ideas are interesting.

Has anyone seen Code 46? It's a love story kinda but I love it, too lazy type up a summary so here's one from Google

In a dystopian future, insurance fraud investigator William Gold (Tim Robbins) arrives in Shanghai to investigate a forgery ring for "papelles," futuristic passports that record people's identities and genetics. Gold falls for Maria Gonzalez (Samantha Morton), the woman in charge of the forgeries. After a passionate affair, Gold returns home, having named a coworker as the culprit. But when one of Gonzalez's customers is found dead, Gold is sent back to Shanghai to complete the investigation.

Watch chronicle and coherence.

Chronicle is about 3 teenagers who get telekinesis. They're realistic characters with (mostly) realistic problems. It starts out funny and gets really dark in the second half. Easily one of the best sci-fi movies out there. It's like a Western spiritual remake of akira.

Coherence is about a group of friends meeting for a dinner party while a comet is passing overhead and multiple versions of their reality and themselves converge it is basically a twilight zone episode-movie and a total mind fuck.

Adrian Parker

I hate the film (couldn't finish it) and don't recommend it because of the plot, acting or any of that, but Avatar actually is cool in that Cameron went full sperg researching things for the spaceships. One example I remember reading about was a shuttle in one 5-second setting clip (showing the space stations hovering a planet before switching to an interior shot with the actors), and the ship is actually a theoretically legitimate design using a weird engine mounted far ahead of the ship to "pull" it and used some future technology that could potentially be discovered someday (versus "muh Forerunner" or "muh Flux capacitor"). If the technology was ever able to be manufactured it'd even adhere to the 2nd or 3rd level of that theoretical 4-level organization of a civilization's overall technological advancement and ability to travel through the universe.

Sorry if this reads like a clusterfuck but I'm tired as dick and haven't read the actual sites/articles in ages. It's neat though.

Is it worth the hype? I remember everyone was losing their shit over it, i only saw about 20 minutes of it and wasn't impressed. Then again it was a random 20 minutes. I'll check it out

Jeremiah Diaz

Like the film itself? Absolutely not. Graphics and visuals were cool as fuck in terms of sheer pixels and colors, but it isn't anything to jizz over unless you're in an IMAX theatre watching it. It's essentially this generation's 2001ASO, except not as groundbreaking (given time discrepancies) and the plot doesn't hold a candle to Kubrick's. SFX are cool and very lush, and the amount of detail on the spaceships is neat- that's about it.

Camden Hughes
Camden Hughes

Ah i guess thats what the hype was about, graphics/visuals! So as far as the storyline goes i shouldn't expect something that really draws me in?

Well thats definitely nice to know i was wondering what all the hype was about, i guess i'll have to watch it and form my own opinion

Ryder Reyes

I'd recommend the Metropolis anime. The animation is so smooth and the story interesting, it was my first introduction to the questions about the humanity of advanced AI.

nothing wrong with their premises imho but too often I find the execution lacking. I'd be fine with the romance (it's good in small doses) but its usually done very badly and love is like a 13 year old girls wish fulfilment fantasy (divergent)
I was pleasantly surprised the hunger games portrayed the eventual maturity of Katniss quite okay-ly.

thats tryhard as fuck imo

I take issue with this. Part of the fun in sci-fi (for me) is having that little kernel of scientific truth and understanding the rules of the universe the sci fi is set in. That said, you could enjoy either/both sci fi which needs a little thinking (eg Dune) or which you can just turn off your brain. A matter of taste.

it didnt for me. Luckily I didnt buy into the hype and went in with zero expectations except that of watching a sci fi movie.

I also recommend the Starship Troopers: Roughneck Chronicles series to people who liked the movie.

Virus (1999). I used to watch it over and over again since it was the only sci fi movie we had when we were poor. I liked it because of the claustrophobic atmosphere of the movie and I like horror stories that happen in isolated locations like ships.

I'm going back to halfchan. I know that's used as an insult al a "back to reddit" because we masturbate on feeling superior to those cuckchaners (wow, attaching "cuck" to a preexisting word, tell me how we're better than /intl/ and it's "rulecuck" again?), but this place is unbearable. The two reasons why I left, gamergate and free speech, are both null anyway. Gamergate is a playground for underage redditors and free speech only brings Kennedi check em check em check em check em check em check em check em spam and unbearable repetitive obnoxiousness anyway. I want an actual place for discussion in which more than 3 people communicate and actual fun, noteworthy events to pop up once in a while. I want a place where "anon" means something, where an actual diverse cast of different viewpoints and ideologies can communicate anonymously and things don't devolve into furious reddit-style circlejerking after a few posts (hence the replies to this very thread). Oh, and the high density of redditors is another reason too. Looking back, I wonder why the fuck I didn't leave immediately when copypaste started advertising on reddit. Who in their right minds would be that fucking stupid? Even luggage lad didn't engage in such degeneracy. And the fucking post errors are ridiculous. I know edge lords are going to spout "hhahaha LOL good riddance u cuckchanner!!11 And stay there xdddd!!!11!", but I'm only in pursuit of a fucking working site in which you can actually post shit. What bothers me the most is that this place had potential. It could've been so much more. We could've had thriving little active communities all the way down the board list, with useful stickies and information dumps and posts everywhere you looked. We could've been the go-to site for everybody's obscure hobbies, except less autistic than reddit turned out to be. Imagine if we had a userbase the size of reddit, but not consisting of the same autists as reddit like we do now. Creatable boards on an IB site seems like such a fun concept, yet copypaste and the cancerous elitism of the userbase blew it. You fucking fags, you made it all go to waste. Of course, that's not to say it's entirely your fault. Some blame has to be put on the godawful administration and moderation of this site, too. Copypaste and Jim straight up don't know how to run a site. They can't make a fucking functioning system without spilling all it's shit every 2 minutes. They, despite knowing making a platform dedicated to free speech would put them under attack, failed to take any measures and fell susceptible to ddos after techincal attack after moderation infiltration. And they hired josh. When the userbase was actually at it's strongest in terms of numbers, although the post quality had dipped since the exodus, they took the jump to Next and didn't complete it, losing a shitton of their users on the way. And in doing so they let /intl/, who seem to be actually competent in terms of sustaining a culture and memes, attack us at or weakest, and in doing so they lost even more users. Holla Forums isn't going to be a story of warriors that overcame the corrupt 4chan like all that patriotic OC from exodus-era /v/ played it up to be. It's going to be a story of what not to do, and either /pol/ is going to consume the rest of the site and we become nothing more than stormfront.com's secondary base with remnants of IB culture thrown in, or our consistent streak of losing users and being insufferable pieces of shit that no one would deliberately go to a site and talk to catches up to us and the entire thing wanes off and dies. Enjoy, fags. Enjoy being ever so confident in telling me to leave because I'm a dirty halfchanner. Enjoy riding this sinking ship and not realizing you were on the wrong side until your corpse is already drenched. Enjoy continuously siding with the cripple and the jew, despite their repeated fuck ups. Enjoy being so obsessed about "OC" despite not having one drop of talent in all of the userbase. Enjoy 2 active boards, one slowly being choked to death by it's own spam, and hundreds of inactive dead ones. Enjoy filtering or saging everyone you disagree with and then calling tumblr the hugbox. Fucking enjoy all of it.

Dominic Martin
Dominic Martin

Over-hype is definitely something that can kill the love of a movie but here's why it's my favourite movie of all time:

- Some of the greatest cinematography ever recorded
- Relateable characters, in a very unrelateable world
- Intense final act with Hal and all that
- but most importantly, the ending.

Now, the ending is the most mind-fucking thing in my opinion, and I've heard its explained way more clearly in the book. But basically, the monolith that shows up at the end and the beginning symbolizes humanity's need to strive forward and evolve over time. The only problem is, that we are animals through and throughout, so we can't comprehend the power of the monolith and what it means to be 'advanced'. When we first see the monolith, it is found by early humans (or gorillas soon to be humans) who approach it with anger, violence, and overall savagery. Later, when we find the monolith as humans, we approach it carefully, study it, and take it into our 'possession' when it's not ours. The humans believe that they are no longer savage because they are able to go about it peacefully, but the entire fact that humans are so self-aggrandizing, and label the discovery as a "feat of mankind's incredible power" shows how we're just as idiotic as when we were monkeys, only now we hide it. When the protagonist is finally exposed to what the monolith has been trying to tell humanity, he can't comprehend it, so the information just appears to be wild colours and acid-like imagery. But once he finally learns what the monolith has been trying to teach us, he becomes a space baby and ushers in the next and first proper step of human evolution.

That's the really condensed version of what the movie means to me, but goddamnit it's great.

Gavin White
Gavin White

Lol unless you rode the fucking short bus to school as a child, it's not very obscure. Hal is trying to fuck over the main character, and at any moment he could die. That's pretty intense to me. Oh and let's not forget that the main character is stuck INSIDE the thing that's trying to fucking kill him.

Matthew Hughes
Matthew Hughes

Yes obviously.
But the obscurity in the shots of prolonged nothingness, the trippy screensaver near the end, the guy in the white room doing fuck all.
It only gets remotely interesting when you read other peoples interpretations, but that's their work not kubrick's.
It's parallel with showing someone a blank canvas with a dot in the centre, then letting everyone else caption it with a thesis on the meaning of life.
That's devoid of any criticisms of it's own and just laziness.
Yes it does offer something, but what it does, it offers few and far between.

Regardless, if a movie can make people think about it so much as people have about 2001, it's brilliant. It's full movie from start to finish that you can enjoy with the blatant story beginning and end it provides, or you can think about it for longer and take something out of it.
If that's not an incredible work of art, I don't know what is.

The interpretations that most arrive at, after connecting the dots, are basically the same as those given in the book, which I believe was released slightly after, but written during, the film's development.
There is plenty in there, if you are paying attention. Especially with regards to ideas relating to life, evolution, the unknown and the alien, machine intelligence, and how these things interact and what role (mechanical, not 'meaningful') they might play in the universe.
It expects an a well read audience that is interested in these questions, and enjoys seeing them explored visually.
If you are not an avid reader of science fictions, particularly science fiction dealing with big ideas, which most of Arthur C. Clarke's work falls under, then much of the content would be invisible to you.
If you have ADD or are especially young, this can also make viewing it difficult, due to the slower pace (slower than average for a film).

i agree with you but i could have done without the acid trip at the end, even so that movie was incredible and it redefined the whole genre. people changed the way they made sci-fi after that movie came out. it set the standard.
people ignore movies that were made before they were born. usually because they saw a few and they were crap and they just assume that only new stuff is good because that's what they mostly watch.

but the truth is- there's a whole pile of shit in every decade. most movies suck. so a random sampling of older movies will often turn up a lot of awful shit. especially old sci fi.

blade runner was REALLY GOOD sci-fi but it's old as fuck.

you really need someone from the era to tell you which ones are good.

ive found some of the best creepy films came from the 70s.

It was whack as shit.
Machine intelligence was the best part and it was hardly expanded upon.

Zero percent of it was compelling or challenging.
They make you sit on it for soo fucking long it was dead before it was conceived.

One, one one one, I am saying the word one, one is the word I am saying.
Two; two is the next word I am saying, two two two, I am saying the word two after the word one.
I am going to combine them, not divide them, not multiply them but add them together.
A final number is the result; the quantity of which, yes the numeric value; the one proceeding my experience of addition is… wait for it…
… Have a seizure first…
…. Wake up from said seizure…

I like some YA novel movies, like the Hunger Games, Divergent, the Maze Runner, and Harry Potter however there are some YA movies I can't even sit through. I recently saw the 5th Wave and it was terrible, I had to turn it off after 30 min because the plot was just made up of plot devices and retarded characters. This is the problem with most YA novel movies, they assume you read the book because the book explains everything better. However these directors trying to interpret the book to the big screen are doing a bad job at at.

Yeah i mean like i said besides the typical love story in YA novel movies, the overall movies have cool concepts. The Hunger Gamers had a cool concept and I actually just gone done watching The Maze Runner which i really liked, now i'm onto the second one

Chase Hill
Chase Hill

I absolutely loved the Mave Runner, I think it's a great concept and I love the direction and all of it, same with the Hunger Games, I believe that it was a great representation of the books. But The 5th Wave I just couldn't get into, sooooo many plot devices, like there is one scene (forgive me if I'm spoiling it) where all the adults are taken seprately and herded into a cabin by the military to explain what is happening. They are asked not to leave and some guy pulls out a gun and threatens to shoot someone if they don't let him go. So the scene jumpcuts into outside the cabin and you hear a bang coming from the pistol the guy had and you assume he shot someone, however instead of killing just the guy with the gun, they kill all the adults for literally no reason. Sorry if I explained this movie pretty bad. But this scene was just a plot device for the main character to avenge her father's death. Every plot device seems very forced and unnecessary.

Also I found this scene on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a03TvDeFYe4
What's happening is that the children are being taken away from the adults so they get on buses but they little brother waits til he's all the way seated in the back of the bus to tell Chloe that he forgot his bear. This scene right here pissed me off soo bad

Check out Pandorum, another good sci-fi horror. Plus the tech scenes aren't too bad.

- Chronicles of Riddick
???? That thing sucked ass

Pitch Black, on the other hand, is a little sci-fi gem.

Riddick wasn't terrible either, although it's basically the same plot as pitch black only with less realistic characters and acting.

Ender's Game
one of the most boring and disappointing movies I've seen in years. Read the book, it's much better.

minority report
better than Aliens
nigga what the fuck have you been smoking. Also, Event Horizon is pretty good.

Brayden Perez
Brayden Perez

An interesting interpretation.

What's really happening is that Bowman is being sent through space and time. The monolith changes him into a star-child, and encase his mind in a fake room that is designed to be recognisable and comfortable, created through intercepted memories and transmissions from Earth.

Star-childs are cool, in the second book, we see Bowman manipulate events on Earth, and in the third, we see him fuse with the faulty Hal9000, creating a superior being entirely.

The books are great!

oh yeah, interstellar was/is one of the best sci-fi flicks of all time. it has slow spots to interlace a very nicely written movie. one glaring draw-back is a total crack-head theory about black-holes, put that completely out of your mind…( thats why they call it a sci-fiction) it is A+++++ 1-5 stars, it is a 6.

C. Nolan truly out-did himself.

if it is still on a BIG-SCREEN where you live, it is a must-see. have some type of mild intoxicant with you to consume, and enjoy a blockbuster.

Brandon James

Maze Runner was so predictable I couldn't enjoy it. Seriously, down to finding the bones exactly where I predicted.

Divergent, haven't seen. I may have read the book though? Hunger Games first two books I read and they were surprisingly good, the movies have high production values overall and are pretty good, shame Jennifer Lawrence is such a tryhard though, she's a good actor just really oversells the "haha I'm so dumb and quirky, now that I've said that let me tell you what you should and shouldn't think".

Watch the first three Cube films just for campy B-movie fun and nostalgic "le nerds xDD" 80s and 90s cringe.

Then watch the fourth one, Hypercube, to see the very definition of a shark jump. It is the most entertaining shark jump I've ever seen.

What ever you do, do NOT watch Jupiter Ascending. Its almost as if they got a cluster fuck of different concept artists, and every idea they could've possibly came up with got approved to be in a movie in which the main characters suck ass and you never have any clue exactly how or why things are happening. Only watch the movie if you are the type that cares mostly about visuals. It is not a good movie.

Brandon Fisher
Brandon Fisher

well, usually sci-fi seems to have a, ya know "dark" theme to it (jupiter ascending). the whole premise is a good Vs. evil thing. so if your into that kind of science fiction, you'll probably dig it. the story does move along at a fast pace, it is like reading about a dozen pages in each chapter of a book (& then calling it done). there is plenty of what, how, who, god-dam-it, why moments in the movie.

interstellar was a very hard/true-science movie, and those are extremely hard to make in hollywood, and keep it interesting. so usually the movie makers completely go-off the reservation to sensationalize or (LIE), about some topic in the movie.

thats how i would characterize the two differently, yes, 2 very different types of sci-fi.

Robert Perez
Robert Perez

cloud atlas was a very unique movie, i can't ever recall seeing a movie put together like that. it was kind of a multi-reality time continuum.

it would be like reading many different books at the same time, and each book taking place at a different point in time, yet all the books are basically linking the same story.

very different and very involved movie.

Forward Unto Dawn but it was really great

It was awful. You have horrible taste. Microsoft cancelled the Halo movie and instead made Youtube videos about annoying cadets and their high school drama. The battle only starts in the second half of the video series and Master Chief is downgraded to a supporting character. I was begging for the teen brats to get killed off.

What the hell is Microsoft smoking? They could have made a movie franchise as big as Marvel's. But they went with the free shit on Youtube. I guess Microsoft really hates money.

Halo movie short

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKGhoJ1mgQY

Leo Cook
Leo Cook

Yeah I caught it when they released the whole thing at once

Master Chief is downgraded to a supporting character.
Well I mean that was sort of necessary, there's absolutely no way they could make a film with Chief as the main character, there's nothing to relate to. That's why Lasky was the main (mostly) focus in the movie, it was a nice representation of some parts of the books. Anyways, a movie with just Chief wouldn't work, It's why we'll never see another Halo movie. A silent and faceless main character wouldn't work out at all, There would have to be some sort of group of marines or something, which would be shit.

Pretty sure it's why Peter Jackson passed on it, it would be too difficult to try and add some random relatable character while (for the most part) the Halo series is about Master Chief. Not to mention the huge budget a movie like this would need, it's too risky.

Dominic Powell
Dominic Powell

group of marines or something, which would be shit

That would have been awesome. If you can't have Master Chief be the main character, then at least make it about soldiers. Halo is about soldiers fighting a losing war. Not Wesley Crusher played by Shia Labeouf Junior and his teen romance.

There was one scene with the teens watching a thirty second video of ODST, insurrectionists and Spartans fighting the Covenant. I remember watching that and getting pissed. Why the fuck do I have to watch other people watch the show that I want to watch. Forward Unto Dawn should have been about those soldiers.

Nathaniel Martin
Nathaniel Martin

Having to relate to a main character to enjoy a movie is just as cancerous as for a game. I'm not James fucking Bond, I'm not Gordon fucking Freeman, I'm just being entertained, I don't have to "self-insert". I swear, porn has ruined all of you faggots.

Joshua Moore
Joshua Moore

I'm just the messenger man, tell that to the studios that passed on Halo for that very reason, all of Hollywood would tell you the same thing. Hell even ask /tv/

I don't think it's about inserting yourself, it's more like a movie with Chief as the main character doesn't work because he rarely talks and is faceless. Cortana is even worse. They'd have to put in completely new characters in order for them to follow a story with Chief. Not to mention the length of the Halo series, so they would have to make up new characters just for the movie. Cause like I said As far as the story goes there aren't any characters that would fit in with Chief, unless like I said earlier that have a group of marines or something following him. But that would still be difficult because I mean it is Master Chiefs story.

Carter Wood
Carter Wood

Nah it would be shit, Halo is entirely (for the most part) Chiefs story not a bunch of random marines. Also considering how fucking long Halo is, these marines would have to never die. They obviously would have to keep up with Chief, and I definitely wouldn't like to see Chief saving their ass every fucking time. It'd be hard for them to keep up with a spartan. Or they would have to keep reintroducing new marines which would be stupid

Well to be fair that was before they Covenant even showed up in the Halo world, Up until then the insurrectionists were their only known threat.

James Cruz
James Cruz

Chief as the main character doesn't work because he rarely talks and is faceless

Dredd did that perfectly. The writer for Dredd wrote the script for the Halo movie. Microsoft had everything going for a new blockbuster franchise, but shut everything down at the last minute.

When something that retarded happens, I always suspect SJWs. Halo probably wasn't "diverse" enough for Microsoft. If the movie ever does get made, it will star a black, lesbian Mary Sue Spartan, directed by jew jew Abrams.

Joshua Phillips
Joshua Phillips

Mistress Chief.

Sebastian Lopez
Sebastian Lopez

Yeah because Dredd talks, he has actual dialogue as opposed to a few words.

Nah the Halo movie was being started on before sjw's became a thing, I just think they failed to go through with it because of the character situation. Also the budget would have to be insanely huge, and video game movies usually always flop, so im sure it's just a risk they didn't want to take financially.

Gabriel Barnes
Gabriel Barnes

Bentley Jackson
Bentley Jackson

You are right about that though. I'm hoping Blomkamp would pick it up but I think it's simply too late now. Halo reached it's peak as far as popularity goes, with Halo 3 (some say 2) so even if a movie were to come out I don't think it would do as well as it would Back in the Halo 3 days. When they were releasing all those live action shorts, the fans were begging for a movie back then.

Alexander Torres
Alexander Torres

Nah it was a lot better than I expected I thought it would be shit but it follows the book(s) pretty nicely. I don't over analyze these movies in some try hard way, I just take it at face value, it's a lot easier to enjoy film that way.

I'm going to rate the movies among your recommendations that I've seen, so anons get two opinions:

Brazil - Overrated as fuck. Has some interesting visuals though. OMG WAT IS REEL AND WAT IS BECUZ UR CRAZY?????? XD Interesting but not worth the hype.

Chappie - Meh. Just meh.

Children of Men - Somehow manages to be preachy hippy message, "le resistance" bullshit, and masturbatory "good old Britain chaps" all at once while masquerading as a balanced view. Despite this, actually a pretty decent movie, and has some very good action scenes (action, not necessarily combat).

Cowboy Bebop - Really good, sadly it's so overhyped it can never live up to the expectations if you lurk enough to see it mentioned constantly. But still really good, watch it. Its only sin is the fucking annoying mascot character who is also le sexually ambiguous loli.

Ghost in the Shell - Similarly good and overhyped.

Fury Road - Has the makings of something great, someone really put a lot of thought into the villains, with the half-life, the cult, the intricate tribal designs…then they spread their asses for some feminazi to steamroll the setting with a plot and thematic symbolism so fucking cardboard it almost seems like an intentional parody. Definitely watch once, then stop watching and just remember the good parts fondly. And then go watch the original three Mad Max movies.

The Martian - Good. Not half as good as it could be because Hollywood couldn't resist their action-erection and put in the cartoony stupid ending that the book alluded to as a ridiculous joke plan and never actually did, but still very good. Watch and read the book.

Planet of Apes (all)

Sky Captain & The World of Tomorrow
Cowboys & Aliens (I know what you're thinking, how can a movie with that title be good, but it actually was)
The Final Cut (minor sci-fi elements but great movie)
Paycheck
The Mist
Titan A.D
Babylon A.D
The Thaw/ Arctic Outbreak
Clockstoppers

Nicholas Williams

Men in Black - Good. The sequel is better. The third one is okay.

Moon - Way better than I thought it would be from the advertising and hype. Quite good.

Primer - If you only watch one movie, make it this one. It's some no-budget talk-rather-than-show indiefest thing…made by engineering students rather than art students. It is possibly the coolest sci-fi movie ever. It's also only 67 minutes long, though it will feel longer watching it. If you don't "get it" after watching it once, watch it a few more times. Very meta, the sequence of the movie is designed to mess with you, but in a more thoughtful and less cheesy way than Memento, which wasn't bad to begin with.

Star Wars - Eh. The first three (which are the second pair of three in order of filming) really aren't worth watching unless you just want some pew pew movies. The original three are obviously the most overrated series in the history of movies, but are actually worth watching at least once. The animated and the seventh I haven't watched so can't comment on, but I mean..Disney.

Stargate - The Stargate movie is actually really good. A little cheesy and for some reason most women can't seem to "get it" at all, but it's quite good.

Terminator - Yeah, watch.

Total Recall - It's good. If you hate Will Smith you won't like it (or Men in Black), but it's good.

Wall-E - Way better than anyone should have expected, it's great.

Watchmen - Final cut is utter shit on the level of V for Vendetta. Director's Cut is somehow way better. Neither is anywhere close to as good as the comic, and it takes some liberties, but Director's Cut is worth seeing at least once.

Waterworld - Everyone must see it once.

Jack Torres

Equilibirum (3 edgy 5 me)

James Flores

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen - downboat

Avatar - two downboats, just go on Youtube and look for the scenes with the best animated panoramas and skip the actual movie. Animation's top notch though even though it's focused on fantasy furshit.

District 9 - It's pretty good but they really ham up the SEE DA MILITARIEZ IS OUT OF TOUCH BADDDD OMG BADDD thing, because otherwise the producers would be called rayciss for not doing a shitty shallow take on the black side of Apartheid. Also WE WUZ ALIEN KANGS KONFIRMED???

The Cube 1 & 2 - Yes and yes. Three can be skipped. Hypercube (4) should be viewed solely for the context of
all of these watches

I, Robot - Okay, could have been better, another Will Smith vs robots, has nothing whatsoever to do with Isaac Asimov's books

GotG - I don't have to see it to know it's worthless furshit

2001 - Good, but pretentious and overrated

Maze Runner - The most predictable movie ever but entertaining nonetheless

Riddick - Good. Except the thing in the first one where instead of killing the bull dyke he magically transforms her into a heterosexual, after fucking around forever and nearly getting killed because he doesn't wax her, despite not caring about her. But overall good.

Blade Runner - Very good. If you don't understand how humans think from an emotionally detached perspective, you won't like it as much.

Star Trek - TNG and related movies are mostly good. Frankly not much else was.

Demolition Man - Very good, Stallone is actually funny (I think it was Stallone, anyways) and Snipes knocks it out of the park.

Akira - It was okay and fun to watch but the japs really need another nuke tbh

Maze Runner - The most predictable movie ever but entertaining nonetheless

Luis Watson
Luis Watson

I appreciate you taking the time to comment my recommendations.

Brazil - I do not think it was overrated at all. Sure, it was weird and a bit slow at times but that movie really reached out and touched me which is quite rare based on the sheer amount of media I consume.

Children of Men - Yes, the hippie-bullcrap & "good old chap"-british debauchery is everpresent thorough the movie but if you look beyond that its a great & touching movie.

Cowboy Bebop & Ghost in the Shell - I generally do not follow the 'hype' of movies so I cant quite relate to what you're saying here. I think these two were just perfectly fine.Beautifully animated and I get the impression that both movies really, truly have a story they want to share with the viewer.

Fury Road - I'm a bit biased here, watched it twice on IMAX & thrice at home, absolutely love it.

The Martian - Ok, I admit, the ending was a bit too extravagant but overall its a really entertaining & well-made movie.

Men In Black - It is indeed good but I wouldnt say that the second one is better & the third one really sucked (Warning: opinions)

Moon - I agree but as I stated earlier I dont follow the commercials & hype. I just watched it without expectations & was blown away by it. Splendid movie, a tear or two was shed.

Primer - I concur.

Star Wars - All I can say is that I enjoy them. People seem to have very varied opinions about Star Wars.

Stargate - The cheesyness is off the charts at times, indeed. But really enjoyed SG-1 & the actual movie really catered to my sci-fi tastes. Surprisingly good movie, to be based off a show.

Terminator - Yupp.

Total Recall - Luckily for me, I dont hate Willie the Smith.

Wall-E - I adore this one, its fantastic.

Watchmen - Haven't seen the Final Cut, only the Directors Cut. I think its quite a good one with its own way (IMO very successful) way of telling a story. Only negative is that its a bit too long.

Waterworld - Surprised by this one. Its not a "must see" but certainly a gem and rather unique.

Christian Edwards
Christian Edwards

Splice - Do you want to watch a cat-bird-downy-birth-defect-gender-bending-somehow-not-actually-furry CGI-ling with 10/10 tits fuck her caretakers/"parents"? Do you want to see sci-fi squick/horror/awwww film turn into bizarre horror/soap opera with a half-assed "it's totally not just fucked up porn" message about "don't cross the gene streams"? No? Then don't bother. Yes? Then watch it you fucking degenerate.

Planet of the Apes - Meh.

Flubber - Looking back I realize it's not as good as I thought it was as a kid, and also that Robin Williams actually always was a massive faggot despite this movie and Mrs. Doubtfire, but the movie is still worth seeing.

Battleship - Second the "would not recommend". It's for the autistic little siblings of army recruits.

Zardoz is the epitome of "total shit, but I enjoy it".

Ethan Morris
Ethan Morris

I know, I know, but it was like beyond normal YA predictability. Hunger Games, books and movies, are quite good, but put them next to Maze Runner and you suddenly they seem like the product of a twisted mastermind by contrast.

but that movie really reached out and touched me which is quite rare based on the sheer amount of media I consume.
but you cri evertim?

Don't see the final cut of Watchmen, it's just a sad butchery next to the Director's Cut. It was worth leaving the DC too long.

Caleb Wood

I agree wholeheartedly here. It was good but a bit pretentious & blown out of proportion.

Maze Runner
Very yes. Aimed towards a younger audience, thus (probably) the predictability. Quite exciting at times.

CRI EVERTIM
Well…
Im not an emotional person so its quite rare for movies to really you know go that extra mile & reach out and touch the viewer emotionally
Its easy to make me laugh, to make me feel angry & scared etc but crying? Not so much. They have to be very atmospheric and gripping, so movies that do make me cry deserve extra credit.

Chase Price

Splice
My answer is and will forever be YES. She's cute & I think it was quite scary.

Planet of the Apes
Yupp.

Flubber
Yupp yupp, but when I first watched it way back it made quite the impression. Not worth re-watching.
Used to build flubbers out of clay & oh my god the robots made me moist.

Battleship
So, so bad & cringey. Very good description, I giggled.

Serenity was good but it will seem strange and autistic to anyone who hasn't first watched the Firefly series.

Treasure Planet was kind of cool.

Dominic Howard

Coneheads made me very (very) uncomfortable trough the movie and think of having children. I dont find it funny and I wonder why it was made.

Aiden Gonzalez

Steins;Gate is an anime worth watching, based on a VN I'm guessing isn't worth playing. It's just one season.

Contrived, sometimes a little overdone, and because the Japanese are all without exception autistic it has some gender-bending jailbait retard temple kid character and half of the cast are halfwits, but it's still great despite it.

Brayden Watson
Brayden Watson

are we thinking of the same movie?
maybe I was too young to remember or understand what was going on when I saw it

Hudson Williams

Notable mention 5:
Apollo 18 (had low expectations, surprisingly good)
Doomsday
The Time Machine
Small Soldiers
Repo Men
War of the Worlds (OMG AAAAIIIIRRRR)
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
9 (Yes, the title is just '9')
Real Steal (watch with a cute nephew)
Videodrome (cray)
Minority Report (was kinda good, shakey passages)
Gravity (If you're going to watch this, rid yourselfs of any expectations and you'll enjoy it.)
Inception
Snowpiercer (barely good, but still…)

Do not watch:
Her

Yes, the very same Coneheads.
I didnt watch it as a kid, saw it a couple of years ago.

The City of Lost Children (love this one)
The Abyss (another really good under-water movie)
The Cabin in the Woods.
Galaxy Quest
Attack on the Block (meh-warning)
Westworld
Silent Running
The Road (almost forgot about this one)
Steamboy
Pacific Rim (kinda reminding of Battleship but less cringey. Its like a long advertisement, a forced attempt to start a franchise, still worth it for the robots tho)
Flight of the Navigator (not really good)

Samuel Walker
Samuel Walker

Notable mention 7:
The Book of Eli (reminds me of Fallout)
Lilo & Stich (adorable)
Wizards (can't decide if it was good or not but it certainly made an impression)
DARK STAR (Most i've talked to think this one is bad but I disagree)
Fido (mediocre zombie flic)

I see plenty of movies, what about TV shows? The Expanse is really cool, i love the visuals. I usually see everyting on Sy-Fy channel as cheap, but this show blew that out of the water for me. I love how in the show our whole solar system is colonized.

Few films to add to the list

Extraterrestrial - creepy
The Zero Theorem - fascinating
Knowing - creepy and fascinating
Absolutely Anything - funny

Babylon 5 - amazing show, with a slow start though

Dark Matter - gets better as the show goes on, a future controlled by big corp

Star Trek Voyager - a lone ship far from home

Star Trek TNG - captain picard

Star Trek Deep Space Nine - war in the trek world, living on a space station

Legend Of The Galactic Heroes - a corrupt democratic space federation vs a corrupt galactic empire where on each side certain men try to initiate change, big thousand+ ship battles and a great story, you will have serious mantears by the end of the show, starts slow but once you're past the first few episodes you cant stop watching

Stargate SG1 - stargate film, but now with more aliens and worlds

How many times did Wesley almost destroy the Enterprise when one of his science experiments goes wrong?

He was the most dangerous person to Starfleet and should have been banned from space.

That, plus his faggot voice, appearance, attitude, and overall borderline autistic behavior are just so hard to deal with. Honestly, there needed to be at least one episode where Picard took Wesley aside and just beat his ass black and fucking blue.

RW movies that should get a mention before Flubber are Toys and Bicentennial Man.

Both have some really dark themes for kids/family movies.

Toys has kids as unwitting drone operators before drones were really even a thing (1992).

Watching Bicentennial Man as a kid gave me feels I never asked for.

Grayson Gonzalez

Anyone know films similar to The Maze Runner? I've watched a few of these YA novel movies but i liked this one the most, i just thought the concept was really neat.

It was predictable like an user above explained, but i'm not necessarily expecting elite directing in this YA novel movies

Ian Barnes
Ian Barnes

holy fuck this thread is ancient.
The movie fucking sucked. The book was far better.
Mass effect makes a far better version of star trek. Without the kid shows.
Wall-e, enders game (because the book is better), and Starship Troopers all sucked other than that everything else is great.
That movie was alright.
The Fifth Element is way overrated

Iron Sky is a great movie (made in 2012, based in 2018), just make sure you get the Director's Cut. It's about Moon Nazis invading Earth yet is actually a very good film, probably because it take the piss out of the Yanks and the Moon Nazi chick is smoking hot. Sequel coming out next year.

Speaking of things, I really like this one. It's more action than science fiction but it's pretty good.
